There is, however, one player pool into which the Buccaneers have not dipped in a very long time. They emphasized acquiring picks for the NFL Draft, so it would be shocking to see them part with one of those picks to take a player in the supplemental draft. He measures over 6-0 and showcases an ability to play in man, press and multiple zone coverages. Alexander and Beal were actually expected to be early-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. He saw some action, mostly as a reserve, and finished the year with 15 tackles.

In a year or two, perhaps the Giants will look back on the gamble they took Wednesday and nod in approval. Bryant missed spring practice for academic reasons and elected to enter the supplemental draft late in the spring. The last (and only) time the New Orleans Saints made a pick in this draft was in 1981, when they spent a first-rounder on quarterback Dave Wilson. "With questions surrounding his work ethic, discipline and attention to detail after his on-field (blown coverages) and academic struggles, Bryant is likely to be a seventh round/priority free agent prospect on most boards around the league".

For a team to get a player, they must send in a round they would take that prospect.

It's not necessarily a bad thing that the Chiefs didn't reach for Beal with a second-round draft pick. Playing with a noticeable edge on tape and mastering a hard technique out of Western Michigan, Beal is a name every football fan should hope to be hearing about with their favorite team soon. Alexander was poised to return for his senior season but elected to leave school after being declared academically ineligible for the 2018 season. His hips are pretty good and he's able to make turns and run with opponents.
